Good Tuesday to everyone! Mr Sunshine is up in the sky now and shining brightly. We are expecting another mild day today. I believe that today will be the warmest day of the week. Instead of taking today off, it worked better for me to take tomorrow off. It will still be a mild day. I need to stop at the garage and have them put the winter rims and tires on. I also am hoping that my husband gets the day off. They advised him yesterday that he has 6 vacation days that he needs to use up before the end of the year. Hopefully one of those days will be tomorrow. I haven't been at my job long enough to have earned any. ~Picture is mine

We don't have to use snow chains, I believe that they use those in BC in the mountains. And this is the very first year that we've decided to go with snow tires, we live in a snow belt region so thought this might be best. As it is I have low profile tires on our car, which I drive, and they are a sports tire and aren't even really great for driving in the rain. I feel it will be worth the it.
He didn't realize that he was entitled to any, usually you have to be with a company for a year to qualify. But his company is very generous. Since nobody does his job when he's not there he doesn't think that he can swing getting all of the days off together, so he's hoping that they will approve tomorrow off, so we can enjoy the day together and then maybe 1 day a week for the remainder of the year, which should finish off his days.
I had to get speciality rims, apparently my car needs them. And I bought used snow tires, but they don't even have 1 season of use, so the savings were worth it in my opinion. I'll only keep that car another 3 years or so, depending on how many klicks I put on it.
